Singu Chuli Peak (6,501m/21,323ft.)
Area: Annapurna Sanctuary in the Annapurna Himal.
Singu Chuli formerly known as Fluted Peak is the highest amongst the "Trekking Peaks" of Nepal. Wilfred Noyce, the first man to summit this shapely mountain with David Cox compared its beauty with India's highest and probably the most beautiful peak, Nanda Devi. This peak is situated in the Annapurna Sanctuary adjoined to Tharpu Chuli and across Hiunchuli peaks. We arrive at the base camp of Singu Chuli in spectacular six days walk up the Modi Khola gorge to the Annapurna Sanctuary. Base camp at around 4350m/14668ft and then establish two higher camps, one at 4,900m/16,000ft at the approach of North East Face and a higher one at 5,500m/18,000ft. on the North East Face of the mountain before the summit is gained. A vertical wall near the summit pose some technical challenge on this climb. This climb is suggested to only those with some alpine and ice climbing experience.
